Charity information

The Phoenix Trust (Milton)

At Phoenix Milton we manufacture and sell concrete paving slabs, wooden garden furniture and other garden accessories, providing supported work experience for people with learning difficulties.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    It is the mission of Phoenix to provide young people and adults with learning difficulties, a range of learning opportunities in a safe, supported working environment sustained through the sale of produced goods in concrete and wood.

    Our trainees work alongside experienced staff and volunteers in each of the production areas experiencing the entire process from production to final sale. As well as growing produce in our kitchen garden trainees work in the kitchen preparing and cooking the produce to serve to their fellow workers.

    Skills developed through a work placement include
    • trade skills (concrete mixing, carpentry, gardening, catering)
    • workplace skills (health and safety, working as a team)
    • life skills (cooking, independent travel )
    • basic skills (numeracy, literacy and IT)

    Our trainees become more independent and grow in confidence and we support their progression to a position of peer support and where possible employment. Phoenix is unique in offering such a wide range of opportunities in a safe and supportive environment to a wide range of people disadvantaged by learning difficulties, mental health and/or behavioural issues.
